Men lie. Women lie. Numbers don’t lie.
Google Analytics is such a big part of digital marketing, without website data to back up what you are saying, you are working in the dark. And no one wants that.
Wrangling data in Google Analytics is a day to day task for many marketers. But it’s not the most usable interface.
You can actually pull that same analytics data into a spreadsheet and play with it any way you want with filtering, custom graphs, mixing with other sources or pushing to a fancy Data Studio report.
The point is: Google Sheets makes playing with Google Analytics data easy.
